First, I started this Fourth of July craft by taking one of my carrots and wrapping a piece of my jean fabric around it. I used my glue throughout this process to secure the fabric stayed into place. Afterwords, I grabbed my stars and began glueing them to the top of the carrot. Then it was onto the next carrot repeating the same step but with a different style fabric.

This Fourth of July craft really is so simple. I repeated the above steps with a total of 3 carrots. I used different fabric but glued the wired stars to the top. This really created that firecracker look. Once I had my 3 finished firecrackers, I took some string and tied them together and made a bow. I repeated these same steps with 3 additional carrots.
